We Are Dublin Town
Launch of Dublin at Christmas 2016
- Wed 09 November, 2016
A jolly man in red, a reindeer and snow – it can only mean Dublin at Christmas!
DublinTown launched the programme of festive events for Dublin at Christmas outside the GPO yesterday. Originally the launch was set to take stage at the junction of Henry St and Liffey St but as November rain decided to make an appearance, it was on to Option B at the front of the GPO.
The Lord Mayor of Dublin, Brendan Carr, popped down to meet Santa himself, who had his trusty reindeer Rudolf with him! The winter wonderland was decked out with over 20 Christmas Trees, metres and metres of twinkling lights and of course snow (thanks to a snow machine!)
The message is ‘Go To Town’ and experience the magic and tradition of Dublin at Christmas time. Celebrate the start of Christmas at the lighting ceremonies taking place from Sunday 13 November until Sunday 27 November across four of Dublin’s iconic city centre locations.
Twins Ann and Maria (3) were also part of the Christmas scene – dressed in their Christmas best!
